  • Depth-aware convolutional neural networks for accurate 3D pose estimation in RGB-D images 

    Porzi, Lorenzo; Peñate Sánchez, Adrián; Ricci, Elisa; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Most recent approaches to 3D pose estimation from RGB-D images address the problem in a two-stage pipeline. First, they learn a classifier –typically a random forest– to predict the position of each input pixel on the ...
  • 3D human pose estimation from a single image via distance matrix regression 

    Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper addresses the problem of 3D human pose estimation from a single image. We follow a standard two-step pipeline by first detecting the 2D position of the N body joints, and then using these observations to infer ...
  • 3D CNNs on distance matrices for human action recognition 

    Hernández Ruiz, Alejandro José; Porzi, Lorenzo; Rota Bulò, Samuel; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we are interested in recognizing human actions from sequences of 3D skeleton data. For this purpose we combine a 3D Convolutional Neural Network with body representations based on Euclidean Distance Matrices ...
  • Multi-modal embedding for main product detection in fashion 

    Rubio Romano, Antonio; LongLong, Yu; Simo Serra, Edgar; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present an approach to detect the main product in fashion images by exploiting the textual metadata associated with each image. Our approach is based on a Convolutional Neural Network and learns a joint embedding of ...
  • Real-time control-oriented quality modelling in combined urban drainage networks 

    Sung, C; Joseph Duran, Bernat; Maruejouls, Thibaud; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Messeguer, Jordi; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Litrico, Xavier (Elsevier, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Urban drainage networks (UDN) carry urban wastewater to wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) in order to regenerate it before releasing it to the environment. Combined UDN (CUDN) carry both rain and wastewater together, which ...
  • Modelización y gestión térmica de una pila de combustible SOFC 

    Delgado Ferrer, Eloi; Serra, Maria; Husar, Attila Peter (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the present work, a dynamic lumped parameter model of the electrochemical and thermal behavior of a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) has been developed. The model is implemented in the MATLAB-Simulink visual programming ...
  • Optimal management of barcelona water distribution network using non-linear model predictive control 

    Wang, Ye; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Urrea, Maite; Romera Formiguera, Juli; Saporta, D.; Valero, J.G.; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a non-linear optimal control strategy for the operational management of water distribution networks (WDNs) including both flow and hydraulic head/pressure constraints. The optimal operation of WDNs ...
  • Low resolution lidar-based multi object tracking for driving applications 

    del Pino Bastida, Iván; Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Massini, Beatrice; Solà Ortega, Joan; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Vehicle detection and tracking in real scenarios are key com- ponents to develop assisted and autonomous driving systems. Lidar sen- sors are specially suitable for this task, as they bring robustness to harsh weather ...
  • Zonotopic fault estimation filter design for discrete-time descriptor systems 

    Wang, Ye; Wang, Zhenhua; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper considers actuator-fault estimation for discrete-time descriptor systems with unknown but bounded system disturbance and measurement noise. A zonotopic fault estimation filter is designed based on the analysis ...
